Zara Larsson Breaks Down "Lush Life"

You were young, you had time on your hands and I
Was a roller-coaster of the kind that needs to ride so high
To dive so low
All the time I had to keep you close
Now I finally know how it must have hurt
To see all of the love and care only work
A little while and then I'd go
All the time I had to keep you close
What you feel is what you get
You know there is no answer fit
We broke the code so long ago
I'm going to keep you ever close
Just like on the day we met
You pulling on me like a cigarette
So like the sea holds to the shore
I'm going to keep you ever close
Now the years have a way to make you forget
That we're still in the same place, no hurry yet
The path we're on is the path we chose
I'll still remember how to keep you close
Linger on, linger on in the scheme of things
We are only inhabiting our own dreams
They don't come true, it's the way it goes
And in the meantime I will hold you close
In my heart and in my head
You are the only dream I dread
The fear will keep on my toes
I'm going to keep you ever close
Just like on the day we met
You pulling on me like a cigarette
So like the sea holds to the shore
I'm going to keep you ever close
So is this what they mean about moving on
Is this really the end you won't stick around
The one that stays, you're the one that throws
Out the one that has kept you close
And is this definition of constant change
A transformation of what we hope stays the same
Cold's the breeze that forever blows
Warm are the hands that have kept you close
Coldness is what lays ahead
So when I see you should I just pretend
The flower's cut but it still grows
I'm going to keep you ever close
Just like on the day we met
I'm pulling on you like a cigarette
So like the sea holds to the shore
I'm going to keep you ever close
I'm going to keep you ever close
